Richard Allport Artist Q&A second round questions…

 Richard Allport Artist round 2 questions

Q1: What are the training DVD’s about specifically?

A: Richard Allport Artist: Because there is only so much you can put into a workshop or even a series of workshops I had always planned to do a large-scale set of DVD tutorials that encapsulated everything I’d learned “on the job” so to speak.

The natural way to do this was as a set of step-by-step guides that demystified the creativity process from beginning to end. When you work long enough in the creative industries you learn that you can use techniques and methods to get very good results very fast, if you know what buttons to press and what gives you the most impact for the level of effort you put in. You can achieve amazing results in a surprisingly short amount of time; all you have to do is have the want to give it a go.

So the DVD set will totally break the creative process down and reform it in a very easy to understand and instinctive way, but also in a new and unique way never presented within the education system before. You don’t even need to be able to draw!

Q2: Do you have a CV or Biog that you can put up on here so people can read what you’ve done?

A: Richard Allport Artist: Yes, give me a couple of days and I’ll upload it in its own post.

Q3: Do you have any new workshops planned? If so can you describe what they’re about?

A: Richard Allport Artist: Yes loads. Without wanting to spoil the surprises there are themes including mythical creatures, how shockingly suggestible we all are, understanding confusion (!) and a crazy one called “How to cheat and lie!”

Q4: Do you provide private tuition for individuals or groups?

A: Richard Allport Artist: Yes absolutely! Each one is bespoke for that person or organisation so if you want any details on this at any level please get in touch directly.

Q5: How is the dragon puppet going and can we see some more development pictures?

A: Richard Allport Artist: Its about to emerge from the moulding process. It had a slight delay due to work commitments and then I had lovely bronchitis! I will post pictures of the silicone skins as they emerge from the moulds soon!

Q6: How many of the new Creativity Break interviews are planned?

A: Richard Allport Artist: Quite a few, it’s taking a while to type them all up in-between doing everything else but several are done and will be posted on here in the near future.

Q7: Can you say more about the weird events that you’ve described happening at schools in several of your posts? My son saw one and hasn’t stopped talking about it since!

A: Richard Allport Artist: Only that if you’re at a local school keep your eyes peeled and don’t blink or you’ll miss them!

Q8: Can you upload any videos of the model making processes you use?

A: Richard Allport Artist: There are several “making of” videos being edited at the moment that will be uploaded to our video channel that you can watch and download for free. Check back soon to check them out!

Q9: Do you work with recommended suppliers of the hardware and software you teach and use?

A: Richard Allport Artist: Yes. We’re currently in talks with the lovely people at PC World about a national deal for schools so we can supply the best hardware and software at the best price and with the best after sales service. More news of this and what decision we come to will follow…

Q 10:  Can you say any more about the potential large project with Q3 Academy mentioned in earlier posts?

A: Richard Allport Artist: ………………………………………….no………….shhh!
